As part of a plea agreement, his sentence will allow him “time to pursue house arrest or doing his time in a city jail on a schedule that allows him to keep working,” according to the news outlet.

Cervantes has paid more than $21,000 in restitution to victims and is expected to continue maing payments.

The customers had asked Cervantes to perform jobs such as resizing or polishing the rings. One of the pieces was an heirloom engagement ring dating to 1892.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
